The relation between U, K and E is elegantly simple, and is derived from our concepts of work, kinetic energy, and conservative forces. Such a relation is also a valuable tool in solving physical problems. Given an initial state in which we know both K and U, and asked to

Unformatted text preview: calculate one of these quantities in some final state, we simply equate the sums at each state: U o + K o = U f + K f . Such a relation further bypasses our kinematics laws, and makes calculations in conservative systems quite simple....
